THERE was mixed fortunes on the inspection front on Friday morning as Sandown got the go-ahead but Exeter was forced to call off its fixture.


Nigel Twiston-Davies had hoped to give The New One his debut over fences at Exeter and he has the option for rerouting his star to Sandown on Saturday for the Grade 1 Racing Post Henry VIII Novices' Chase.

The trainer still faces a big day on Friday as last season's Weatherbys Champion Bumper winner Ballyandy makes his third start over hurdles in the Grade 2 Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle.

The track had been due to inspect at 7.30am, but shortly before clerk of the course Andrew Cooper ‏(@ACooperClerk) tweeted: "Racing goes ahead @Sandownpark on Friday. After early frost last night, temperatures now +4 and rising."

Exeter suffered a different fate with patches of frost still in the ground at the 8am inspection and temperatures remaining low.
